It’s a man’s world. Truer words were never spoken than when talking about La Cosa Nostra. Women are merely pawns or commodities to be used as bargaining chips or toys and then discarded as one pleases.
Melina Morgan is discounted because she’s the fairer sex. But that would be someone’s first mistake, because she’s a force and not to be messed with. She’s a real Gun Moll.
“She’s the one that no one ever expects. She’s the pretty face in the corner that everyone overlooks. She smiles and bats her lashes, but when you turn your back, she’ll cut your fucking heart out from behind. She’s dangerous. She’s amazing. She’s a mobster’s girl, the unsuspecting lady with a gun hidden under her coat, and the only thing a man can trust to follow through.”
James ‘Mac’ Maccari is a good soldato with aspirations of getting his button; becoming a made man.
What he didn’t count on is Melina. Life or death circumstances may have brought these two together but it’s their magnetic attraction and growing affection that keeps them together.
Mac and Melina are both stand out characters and I couldn’t get enough of either of them. Melina's the epitome of strong, independent and sassy. She’s the kind of woman that men take notice of, she’s hard to miss.
Mac's dominant but while he lives in a dark and dangerous world, he’s a special kind of man. He knows how to treat a woman. And if you’re lucky enough to be his woman, you’ll be respected and adored.
"If a man cares enough, worshipping his woman should be the simplest, easiest, and most obvious thing for him to do every day, doll. She should be the most important thing on his mind. The first and last thing he considers every day and night.”
Together these two are quite the pair and while things aren’t easy for them. They make it sexy, sweet and memorable.
This ends on a cliffy that has both Melina and Mac in a precarious situation. I want book 2 now.
I highly recommend this first-time collaboration between Bethany and Erin. If you love Mafia stories, formidable heroines and unforgettable heroes, this is a MUST read!
